Mini Home Tour

Over the weekend, I decided to clean out my pantry. It was a huge mess. You know, buy baking soda because you're out and then find three boxes of it behind some expired marshmallows kind of mess. Anyway, while I was organizing my pantry, I was thinking of how much Candy loves organizing her pantry, and how much fun she's having in her lovely new home. She is always asking readers of her blog to share home tours, but neither Elena nor I ever have.

So, while I'm not going to post a whole home tour, I thought I'd post pictures of the areas that Candy and I have in common. First, the newly cleaned pantry. You can see aprons hanging on the back of the door.


In the kitchen, laundry room, or other areas, I have little bits of religious artwork here and there. The idea is that it reminds me to pray and offer my work to God, but it doesn't always work out that way. I got this tile of Our Lady of Guadalupe when I traveled out West to visit my Aunt.


I haven't noticed that Candy likes to dry her clothing outside, but maybe she will start at this new house. I love hanging the clothing outside to dry because I get a few minutes of quiet outside by myself. I often forget to go outdoors and enjoy the beautiful day otherwise. I miss that during the winter.


Candy hopes to homestead, and while we don't dream of animals, we are doing some suburban gardening. I will have three teenage boys someday, so the first thing we did when we moved in was plant several apple trees and some kiwi vines.


Even when you aren't homesteading, you have to watch out or the animals will take over.


Here is our little homeschooling corner. My oldest child uses the larger desk, and the two middle children use the smaller table.


Candy loves her library, and so do I!


I also have a large bathtub, but I can't say that I'm the sort to go soak in the tub.


Hope you enjoyed the mini-tour!

My son's PTA is auctioning off themed baskets for a fund raiser this Sat. I suppose that's pretty standard.

Kenny had to bring in bread crumbs and in the kitchen shelves I found three containers, all open. Oy. There's no excuse for that.

Then I had half a bag of pasta, so I bought some mozzarella cheese to make a pasta bake. I used the rest of the pasta but only half the cheese. So I bought some more pasta to use the rest of the cheese. Now I have half a bag of pasta again.

Nice pictures; nice home.

Home economics isn't my strong suit.
